BMW is recalling 42,000 3 Series vehicles from the 2002-2003 model years for an airbag issue that has impacted other major automakers such as Toyota, Honda, and Nissan.

According to the German automaker, no improper deployments or injuries related to the issue has been reported to BMW, which now joins other automakers in the massive recall. Over 3.4-million vehicles have already been recalled, all for a single faulty part in an air bag built a decade ago in Washington State.

Air bags from the supplier could catch fire or send metal fragments, further harming people in the front seat. At the initial announcement of the massive recall, BMW didn’t say how many or what models it would recall, but said that it would take part.
